On Wednesday, November 4th at 7:30pm in Danforth, the Painting and Drawing Department will be hosting a lecture by three abstract painters: Stephan Fritsch, Leonhard Hurzlmeier, and Brent Hallard. This lecture will be a small group discussion about abstraction in contemporary art practice as well as an opportunity to hear from artists who work internationally. Each artist will make a 20 minute presentation of their work and then Robin McDonnell will moderate the discussion. Although the program begins at 7:30pm, there will be an opportunity to mingle with the artists while enjoying pizza and beer at 7pm.
